The 74th Annual Emmy Awards, chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, are on Monday, and we know you have questions. Fortunately, we have the answer.
When will the Emmy Awards take place this year?
The Emmy Awards will air at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, with a red carpet pre-show on E! starts at 6 p.m. ET. The ceremony will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and will be hosted by comedian and Saturday Night Live showrunner Kenan Thompson. The pre-screening was hosted by actress Laverne Cox.
But perhaps you mean the Creative Arts Emmys? Bad news: they’ve already happened. Good news: Channel FXX (both on cable and streaming) will broadcast the edited highlights on Saturday, September 10 at 8 p.m. ET.
Those Emmys are given in a smaller ceremony, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t important; they honor directors, makeup artists, music directors, guest stars, and more. One winner was Chadwick Boseman, who was awarded an Emmy for his voice acting on the Disney+/Marvel show. What happens if….
this is a full list.
How do I view them? What if I don’t have a cable?
NBC will broadcast the Emmys live. You can find your local NBC station here.
But don’t worry! If you don’t have a cable subscription, the show will also stream on Peacock first. (Peacock offers a free seven-day trial). NPR critics and reporters include Eric Deggans, Glen Weldon and Linda Holmes, will also tweet live during the show; and you can find Tuesday’s post-game analysis on Morning Edition and Pop Culture Happy Hour.
Why are the Emmys on Mondays?
Normally, the Emmys are held on a Sunday, like most awards ceremonies, which is why the date can be confusing. But when it was NBC’s turn to host, the award was moved to Monday to make room for NBC Sunday night football.
Who is the leading candidate?
Heir received 25 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, far ahead of any other show. But it will be complete with lots of excellent shows, including the final season of Better call Saul, as Squid gameThis is the first non-English program to receive a nomination in this category.
For the best comedy, Ted Lasso seems to be a favorite with 20 nods, but Abbott Elementary School, a model about an elementary school, is a lovely work and a refreshing feeling. Plus, creator and star Quinta Brunson made history by becoming the first Black woman to receive three nominations for the show. And then there’s There are only murders in the buildingSteve Martin/Martin’s short comedy pokes fun at podcasts (and New Yorkers).
Will we see another slap, like at the Oscars?
Host Kenan Thompson told the Associated Press: Absolutely not.
“It’s basically like taking the world off guard, and that’s not going to happen again. Even while I’m roasting [someone]it will not be considered malice of any kind. ”
